Brad McGee's optimism about the elimination of his back problems has been dashed after he withdrew during Tuesday's Tour de Suisse stage to La Chaux-de-Fonds. McGee had hoped that his sciatic nerve problem had been fixed, but apparently not. "Bradley will undergo a few tests in the coming days," said FDJ director Yvon Madiot to Sportwereld.

McGee also withdrew halfway through the Giro d'Italia because of the problem.
